Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1997 Chevrolet Astro

Tune-Ups to Help Your Chevrolet Astro Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1997 Chevrolet Astro’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Astro. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Chevrolet's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Astro’s engine running smoother, longer.

Chevrolet Astro Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1997 Chevrolet Astro. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Astro. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Astro’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Astro's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Use Chevrolet’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

1997 Chevrolet Astro Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Chevrolet Astro to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Chevrolet’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Chevrolet Astro? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Astro engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
